CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars

C.A.T.S.: Crash Arena Turbo Stars -- equal parts Battlebots and cat fight

Not that kind of cat fight. In this cartoon game the player creates an almost Rube Goldberg-esque fighting robot and battles other players creations. In a sort of jousting fashion, each player pushes to destroy the other players robot. This is an interesting departure for Zeptolab, the makers of the Cut The Rope franchise. A foray into the multiplayer world with a quirky, but fun game.

Vignettes

Vignettes - an artistic puzzle game that looks and plays amazingly well

I’m always a fan of something that takes an artistic slant toward gameplay. Vignettes does just that in a bright pastel color palette with a series of object puzzles and visual effects. To quote Skeleton Brothers, the makers:

Vignettes is a casual but unique exploration game without text or characters, where objects shapeshift as you spin them around to wander through a kaleidoscope of different moods and settings.

Orangepixel extends Meganoid franchise with Meganoid (2017)

We’re huge Orangepixel/Pascal Bestebroer fans at Slide To Play. The retro style, maddening hardness, and constant game release from them is just amazing. Meganoid (2017) is no exception. Taking the platformer that we know and love and expanding and extending it with so many new features and reasons to pull your hair out. A great updated game from great developer.

Golf Zero

Half golf game, half platformer, Golf Zero entertains

Golf Zero is the kind of game that must have come out of a dare or a high. Combine a golf game with a platformer and throw in bullet time just for the heck of it. In the multiple holes the player has up to three shots to get the ball in the hole while jumping from platforms and generally shooting the ball (magically) while in the air. Not sure how that works, but this game, miraculously does work.

It’s inventive, fun, lots of levels, and best of all it’s free to play with ads.

Ticket to Earth

Robot Circus brings turn based battler Ticket to Earth to mobile

Turn-based grid battler Ticket to Earth is finally out on mobile. I first saw this promising game what seems like a lifetime ago. In Ticket to Earth, the board grid is played like a strategic match-3 game. Connect the tiles to increase / trigger certain powers. The strategy involved is where the player under control ends up. Too close to the bad guys and they will strike. Too far and the player can’t strike them.

Ticket to Earth is a good strategy game that melds a couple styles that work well on mobile together. The game play time is a bit long for a casual player, but just right if you like strategy games and are willing to devote a little time in a play session.

SpinnyWings

"One Touch Flying Mayhem!" - Spinnywings brings memories of the arcade to mobile

Single button control games aren’t usually my thing. They generally lack any sort of replayability. But in this case it’s an design decision that actually works out well as it keep the game arcade-like. In Spinnywings you touch the screen to turn right, avoid other planes and gather balloons for power-ups, loot, and fuel. Arcade fun through and through.

Spin your way across the sky and collect balloons. Unlock loot crates and collect 10 different aircraft along with a ton of different boosts, paint schemes and streamers.

See how long you can resist the massed forces of Evil Air Corporation’s zeppelins, fighters, bombers, choppers and air mines!
